Informed by more than thirty years of experience, this guide provides a wealth of insight into the clinical observation, diagnosis and treatment of elderly patients. Organized geographically from (literally) head to toes, it concentrates on the basic geriatric physical examination with each chapter providing general information as well as helpful approaches to specific regional complaints. Emphasis is placed on assisting the dedicated clinician in becoming a more perceptive observer of elderly patients with honed skills in geriatric bedside diagnostic evaluation. The text also includes historical vignettes and anecdotes of great physical diagnosticians to demonstrate the evolution of clinical skills. Tables and line drawings complement the text.
